I'm really confused by the conflicting reviews on this hotel. Unfortunately, my experience was totally in line with the bad ones. I'm really thinking that the good ones must be confused with a different hotel. The room was awful! I'm not that picky of a guest, a clean room and maybe a friendly smile at the front desk is all I need. I did not get that. Despite the hotel description stating that all rooms have a balcony, mine didn't even have a window! It smelled damp and moldy. There was dirty and dust piled up in the corners of room. The sheets/towels/pillows were of really low quality and really counted out for you, very minimal. The toilet doesn't flush, you have to put the used toilet paper in the garbage can for collection! There is no shower curtain, just a shower head on the wall next to the toilet (and said garbage can).
As far as that smile from the front desk....they only issue one key for the room and suggest you leave it with them when you go out (when you return, they just hand you the key when you say the room number, they don't check your name or i.d., very unsafe!). this one key is needed to turn on the power in the room. Unfortunately, I was injured when we arrived and couldn't really walk, which meant my boyfriend had to go out quite often without me. The front desk refused to give him a second key unless we paid for it, suggesting either I get up to open the door for him each time (with 2 injured legs), or I sit in the dark without power (or windows!) while he goes out. Are you kidding?!?
Anyway, never again, and although alot of the budget range hotels in this area do seem to be a bit run down, I'll take my chances elsewhere. Honestly, I don't understand the people with rave reviews on this property. It doesn't make sense.
The only good point was the location, seemed to be pretty central.
